Unloader® Hip

Unloader® Hip


The Unloader Hip brace is designed to reduce pain by optimizing load dispersion and proprioceptive control for patients suffering from mild to moderate hip osteoarthritis (OA), thus contributing to hip stability and improved mobility.

Indications for use:

  • Mild to moderate hip osteoarthritis (OA)

Product highlights

  • Easy-To-Use The pocket wrap closure system and simple-to-tighten pulley system makes the Unloader Hip easy to use and adjust.
  • Optimum Comfort With its breathable Lycra material and elastic sections, the Unloader Hip provides a comfortable and snug fit - allowing a discreet fit under clothing.
  • Improved Mobility The Unloader Hip provides proprioceptive support through compression of the affected area. The Rotation Control Strap then allows individual adjustment of hip abduction and the external rotation force, resulting in improved mobility for users.
